We went on the Free Tour Stockholm walking tour yesterday and it's one of the better walking tours we've done in Europe. The guide Ryan was great- friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about Stockholm and Sweden. He covered modern and not so modern history and we walked through different parts of the newer Stockholm area and finished up in a... More

Best tour I've ever taken and the best guide I've ever had. His name is Ben and he was humorous, charismatic, and enthusiastic. He made learning fun! I had such a great time on the city tour, that I went on a second one with him later that day in Sodermalm. I highly recommend both.

I first did the city tour with Nina and it was great! She was an excellent guide! She was very knowledgeable and spoke slowly and clearly so stories were easy to follow. She also seemed like a natural tour guide, never stumbling over words or taking time to think and made some good jokes as well. It was all very... More

Did the city tour with Ryan last week. He was very engaging, personable and exhibited real sensitivity in addressing the bombing, its aftermath and the various tribute/memorial locations encountered in the course of the tour. Fun tidbits of information delivered with great enthusiasm. A couple of days later I did the Gamla Stan tour with Kevin. The weather took a... More

Despite the terrible weather, we got an amazing tour with our guide, Ben. We stopped at about ten main places and covered most attractions while learning Swedish History, fun facts, and culture. Definitely recommend as it is a little less than two hours that definitely place you in Sweden. I would recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your... More

We really enjoyed our City tour and Soder tour with Ryan and Zenid respectively. They were both very engaging - love their bubbly and witty personalities. Their vast knowledge on the city not only has helped us to discover the city through the lenses of the locals but also enriched our knowledge on Sweden's/Stockholm's history in a very fun and...

Was just disparagingly simple and not good. The point of this is to tip your guide if they do a good job, just use the money to pay for a better tour.

Hi Conor F, thank you for taking our tour and for taking the time to write about it. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't happy with our tour. But I'm also glad that you understood our concept – if you didn't like the tour, just don't tip. You should not pay anything for a tour you felt was subpar.... More
